Baghdad / Obelisk: Informed sources revealed, on Monday, January 3, 2022, that Al-Sadr adhered to Al-Kazemi as a candidate for prime minister for a second term, despite the reservations of some parties to the coordination framework on Al-Kazemi, according to an undisclosed program on Al-Furat TV.
The sources said, that Al-Sadr put forward the name of the former Minister of Communications, Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi, as a second candidate after Al-Kazemi for prime minister, in order to push the framework to accept Al-Kazemi, since Al-Kazemi’s acceptability to the framework is better than Allawi.
In light of the controversy that is still raging about the national majority advocated by Al-Sadr and the consensus that the rest of the political forces and blocs insist on, choosing the prime minister seems to be the most difficult task among the opponents of the majority or consensual advocates.
Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi, whose term expired after the elections, is one of a group of names nominated for this position in closed rooms.
Political observers believe that the new electoral law was agreed upon by the political forces, which are the same forces that agreed to choose Al-Kazemi to head the government, whose tasks were to hold the elections.
Although there are other tasks placed before Al-Kazemi, such as restoring the prestige of the state, Al-Kazemi succeeded within a year and a few months, and succeeded in the two most important files identified for his government amid doubts that they could be achieved, namely, holding elections, and restoring the state’s prestige.
